CAP Corp. is a social enterprise that dedicates 30% of our revenues to fund amateur sports and concussion research, and 20% to organizations implementing it. CAP was founded on the principle that preventing concussions is not about changing the sport, it's about changing the athlete. The bottom line is that our athletes need an entirely new method of conditioning to be resistant to the demands of their sport. It is our contention that through our new innovative CAP Program we can change how an athlete handles an impact and thus reduce the risk of TBI. The goal is to move the theoretical science from the laboratories into the hands of coaches to injury-proof our athletes.
The CAP Program does just that! It puts control in the hands of coaches and athletes at all levels of sport and, allows us to gather valuable data to utilize for new, practical research studies, products, protocols, and services. We work closely with leading scientists at Universities, Government, and Private Institutes including University of Alberta, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Cortical Metrics, and Innovate Calgary.
Dr. Hossein Rouhani, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Alberta - "The unique feature of the CAP testing system and biomechanical analysis is its predictive value: We do not need to have an athlete experience an actual concussive impact to evaluate the effectiveness of his/her strength training on the risk of concussion. It is the first time that such an innovative, affordable system enables coaches to safely and objectively evaluate the strength training and thus opens horizons to utilize an optimal training protocol that minimizes the incidence of concussions in contact sports".
"We are very enthusiastic about the Brain Gauge technology being integrated with the CAP Program. The data obtained from the breakthrough CAP RAM tests will provide new insights into our concussion research. Our partnership with CAP Corp opens the door to a multi-parametric approach to concussion assessment that could significantly improve our understanding of concussion prevention and treatment" commented Mark Tommerdahl, CEO of Cortical Metrics.
CAP tests are designed to:
- Measure the biomechanics that occur prior to traumatic brain injuries providing a reference point for reducing the risk potential for concussions in athletes,
- Assess neurological function with sensitive non-subjective markers,
- Provide a sideline test to assess potential brain injury, and
- Generate individual athlete training goals based on the CAP Test score to become more resistant to concussions.
